About five minutes before this shot the rain was so heavy the hut could hardly been seen, even though it is still raining and I was holding the camera up for only seconds to avoid the driving rain on the lens the sun burst out to produce this dramatic shot of the ‘Scot’ topping the summit at Drumochter with the Great Britain 5 railtour.
The loco is LMS Royal Scot 46115 Scots Guardsman
The summit of the railway line is 452m (1480 ft.), making it the highest in the UK.
